US residents: Do you want a copy of the Sandra and Woo anthology or art book?

Thank you for all the orders! Now that the book covers have arrived in the United States, it is too late for additional orders!

The cover pages for the U.S. versions of the Sandra and Woo: 10 Years anthology the art books The Art of Sandra and Woo are currently on their way back to my print shop Ka-Blam in Florida. This means the finished books will be sent by Ka-Blam to our Kickstarter backers next week or so.

I printed more books than needed. This means, a good number of books are still available for purchase! All of them have the “Freedom! Justice! Cookies” line and my signature on the inside of the cover page. Some of them also have a stencil that turned out sub-optimal with smudges, a couple bad outlines, etc.

See the Kickstarter campaign for all the info about the books!

This is your last chance to get the books! The following packages are available for purchase. The listed prices already include shipping! Your shipping address must be located in the United States!

  • Art book + PDFs: $30

Good progress regarding U.S. books + Failed shipments?

I’m finally feeling better again after my long sickness and I’ve been working hard on the Sandra and Woo books for our Kickstarter supporters from the U.S. in the last week.

All the books are now signed and I’ve also finished the work on the stencils for the special editions of the art book. And I’m really happy with how the stencils turned out! The outlines look very clean. It definitely paid off to order a new stencil sheet with an additional stage on top of Larisa’s head. I should be able to send all the cover pages back to Ka-Blam in the United States before the end of the month.

If you are one of our international backers and have not yet received your book or it arrived damaged, then please write an email to novil@gmx.de. I will organize a second shipment after my work on the U.S. books is done.

If you failed to order a copy in time, then please also drop me a line at novil@gmx.de. Depending on the responses, I may still have some copies available.


Comments from Kickstarter backers about the books

The cover pages for the U.S. versions of the books have arrived in Germany. As expected, they have made their way into the customs office in the neighboring town. I will try to get them in the following days.

I will also purchase a new stencil sheet that includes an additional bridge at the top of Larisa’s head which was a very problematic area when creating the stencils for the international versions.

Here are comments from backers who received the international version(s) of our books:

I have not read everything yet but what I have seen so far looks amazing. Very good quality.
I was surprised by how heavy the whole story book actually is.

[…] The cherry on top is that I did not just receive a recollection of strips, but plenty of side information, drafts…
I am just amazed, I am absolutely in awe

I am really happy about it. Great work!

I honestly didn’t expect there to be so many little (and big) notes and info tidbits. It really adds to how the comic was made. The anthology is much much more than just a collection of the strips, it has real history!
So glad I backed you!

My book arrived today, sensibly packaged and in good condition.
I am also very happy with the quality of the book and just want to genuinely say thank you for giving me the opportunity to own this collection.

Books came few days ago.
They look great!

My books arrived last Thursday
They look wonderful

Hi, got the books now and they are totally awesome, they are so beautifully made and it is a delight to read your notes around some of the strips and the sketches from Powree. I’m really happy about this great and beautiful addition to my library.


Back in Germany

After an exciting, eventful and exhausting vacation in Japan I’m now back in Germany. Unfortunately, I immediately caught a cold since it was awfully cold in the airplane on the way back home.

Updates will be irregular in the next weeks since I also have to work on the fulfillment of the Kickstarter campaign regarding the books for our American backers.


Only one update next week

There will be only one update next week. I did not have time to think about new strip ideas in the last weeks and I’ve now completely run out of material. Things will return to normal after my return from my Japan trip in mid-April.
